Pakistani women have contributed greatly to the country’s economy and society since its inception. Despite facing various challenges, they have continued to make strides toward gender equality and empowerment. Today, they hold influential positions in government, business, and other sectors, and are actively working towards creating a more inclusive and just society for all.
In Pakistan, life is so hard for working women as they have been facing many issues such as discrimination, harassment, and lack of support from their families and society. However, despite these obstacles, Pakistani women have shown remarkable resilience and determination in pursuing their goals and making their voices heard.
According to the census of Pakistan 2017, Pakistani women makes up 48.76%. Now here’s a question- why we are not using this power or we can say why we fail to avail this gift t of nature? In Pakistan, women have limited access to education, healthcare, and employment opportunities. Even they don’t have full rights but still they put efforts constantly to do something best. Nevertheless, there is still a long way to go in achieving gender equality and empowering women to fully participate in all aspects of society. It is important for policymakers and society as a whole to recognize the value of women’s contributions and work towards creating a more inclusive and equitable environment for all.
There are lots of unheard success stories of women who have been doing best in every field, we have a huge example of Hazrat Khadija (r.a) who took the responsibility of training goods from Macca to Syria and to Yemen. It is important to recognize and celebrate these achievements, as they serve as inspiration for future generations. Additionally, it is crucial to address the systemic barriers and biases that continue to hold women back from reaching their full potential in all areas of life.
Despite these harsh realities, women are making their own way to success in every aspect of life from politics to business & sports. However, there is still much work to be done in terms of achieving gender equality and creating a world where every woman has the opportunity to thrive. We just need to think positively, dream big, and believe in ourselves and our abilities. It is important to support and empower women in all areas of life from education to career advancement & leadership positions. By doing so, we can create a more equitable and fair society for all.
